Selfless Ambition is a response to crisis in our community.

The situation in our local schools is at a crisis point.

At-risk kids are often too stressed to learn without nurturing one-on-one support. Make a kid feel valued and the world opens up.

Selfless Ambition is a faith-based, grass roots, charitable organization. We have set our sights on the reduction of the racial achievement gap in our local schools. We are working in partnership with the Madison Metropolitan School District, and a local food bank to attack school performance issues in two ways; access to food and tutors.

This is how lives are changed.

Together, we can make a difference.

How are our children faring?

Did you know just 12.5% of African-American children in the Madison Schools can read or do math at grade level? Let’s face it … this reflects poorly on us as a community. We can’t let it go on. We’re condemning our children, the next generation, to bad jobs and little hope.

The statistics speak for themselves. 19.5% of students in our community live at-or-under the poverty line. A full 50% of African American students don’t graduate high school in 4 years, and nearly half of African American males have an encounter with law enforcement by the time their 18. Only 10% of Latinx students score college ready on their ACT.


Our Mission: Serve our area families and individuals with compassionate acts of love. Encourage, educate, and nourish our children as a servant-hearted expression of Jesus Christ

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
